Make no mistake about it, and choose no ignorance – the left is coming for your guns, but they’re going to do it one screw at a time.
A number of states have adopted anti-gun rights legislation over the course of the last few weeks, in response to a number of tragic spree murders in the United States. Among the major changes coming to America will be the banning of bump stocks, devices that allow for faster trigger pulls.
The Trump administration announced Saturday it has taken the first step in the regulatory process to ban bump stocks, likely setting the stage for long legal battles with gun manufacturers while the trigger devices remain on the market.
The move was expected after Las Vegas massacre — but have since become a focal point in the gun control debate.the Justice Department to work toward a ban following the shooting deaths of 17 people at a Florida high school in February. Bump stocks, which enable guns to fire like automatic weapons, were not used in that attack — they were used in last year’s
The Justice Department’s regulation would classify the hardware as a machine gun banned under federal law. That would reverse a 2010 decision by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that found bump stocks did not amount to machine guns and could not be regulated unless Congress amended existing firearms law or passed a new one.
Several companies have arbitrarily raised the age requirement to purchase rifles as well, a move that legal experts are unsure what to make of.
On Friday, lawyers for the NRA requested an injunction in federal court to stop Florida officials from enforcing the new policy that makes it illegal for those under 21 to purchase firearms, arguing in a complaint that the law is unconstitutional and imposes “a significant, unequal, and impermissible burden on the right to keep and bear arms of a class of millions of law-abiding 18-to-20-year-old adult citizens.”
The NRA argues that the restriction would put a particular burden on NRA members who are women under 21 because they are less likely to engage in violent crime than older men who can legally purchase firearms. The complaint argues that women “pose a relatively slight risk of perpetrating a school shooting such as the one that occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, or, for that matter, a violent crime of any kind.”
And it is for these reasons that we mustn’t take our rights for granted, and we must unite together, today, at our respective state capitols.
I’ll let Stew from Oath Keepers take it from here:
You are needed to attend the 2nd Amendment rally in your state capitol this Saturday, April 14. We have posted about those rallies and we have sent out emails about it.
But I want you to know that this is not just an announcement, letting you know about these rallies. It is also a call to action.
It is critical that we show up and stand next to our brother and sister gun owners this Saturday so we can let the nation know that we will stand up for our right to bear arms.
Please make sure your boots are on the ground at the rally in your state.
